In May 2010 i had conclusively decided that i lacked the foundations of composition, so i sketched out (and subsequently carried out) a detailed one year plan which, for the most part, was to involve an in-depth analysis of Mozart’s complete string quartets and select 20th Century works. Currently these scores are all gathered in a dusty box in Tirana, and the quickest glance is enough to bring back a familiar “luft von anderem planeten.”
